Online Payments (Recommended Method of Payment for Out-of-Pocket Payments)

SJU suggests making your payments online, especially when you are paying on or after the tuition due date. Paying online with a checking account is easy and no additional fees are applied.

All online payments made through the directions in the link below will feed directly to the student's account. 

Credit/Debit Card Payments

Saint Joseph's University has partnered with an outside company, TMS, to provide credit and debit card payment options for students. This will allow students to make credit or debit card payments through a third party, which assesses a 2.99% convenience fee. Please note that your credit card payment will be applied to your account within 48 business hours.

Online Check Payments

Saint Joseph's University has partnered with an outside company, TMS, to provide an electronic check payment option. This will allow students to make payment through a third party, which will withdrawal funds directly from a checking or savings account at no additional cost to the student. Please note that your checking payment will be applied to your account within 48 business hours.  You must confirm or verify with your banking institution that third party payments can be debited from your specific account.

Check Payment:

SJU suggests online payments, as paper checks take more time to process and to be put on the account. Online payments made with a checking account (using your routing and account numbers) do NOT incur a convenience fee. The convenience fee is only applied when using a credit card.

Scholarship checks from outside sources should be sure to include the Student Name and Student ID to ensure be applied to your account.

In order for your check to be processed properly when applying to your bill, please send only the remittance form from your Electronic Bill (bottom portion) and your check. Always include your name and your 8 digit student ID # in the memo line of the check. Checks should be made payable to "Saint Joseph's University" and sent to:


Please note that not including the remittance slip, including other documents besides the remittance slip, or sending the check via certified delivery will delay the processing of your payment.

If you are having difficulty logging in or navigating the bill payment option please make sure you are accessing your account from a service other than a mobile device.
